So, that’s four weeks of training complete. One quarter of the way to the marathon. Wow!
I have a confession to make – I missed a run this week. Yesterday’s (Saturday’s). I just didn’t feel in the mood for it.
The trouble really stemmed from the start of the week. After the Devilla 15km run I was feeling really tired. On Tuesday I ran what was essentially a recovery run, then on Wednesday I travelled to Stevenage. Once there, I slept pretty badly, but decided that after work on the Thursday I would do a threshold run.
This, I think, was my mistake. I was rushed, poorly rested and it all just felt wrong. After a long journey home by train on Friday, it is little wonder that I just couldn’t motivate myself to get out on the Saturday. So, I made an excuse that I was resting before the Lasswade 10 mile run.
Next week is going to b a bit of a cut-back week, in effort if not in distance. Think of it as a sort of mini-taper before the Alloa Half Marathon, which is two weeks today.
